Is there anything more satisfying than the break of wooden chop sticks? Well, for a foodie at least.

Korean BBQ Bibigo Bar & Dining serves, in my opinion, dishes which you would be happy to pay more for.

They had me with their reasonably priced menu. But I sat down to find their 3 course lunch special for £9 and had me like putty in their hands.

I chose the Korean chopped salad, red chicken, grilled baby chicken, a bowl of rice (£1 extra) and a mocktail called lychee debonair (£4.10).

While I waited for my dishes, I enjoyed the sweet smells and aroma swirling in the dining room which increased my appetite ten fold.

The lychee debonair was a potent mix of lychee juice, aloe vera juice, mint and yuza marmalade.  Fresh and sweet, it tasted similar to pineapple juice.

I’m not big on salads, but Bibigo’s has made me rethink. Crunchy, fresh ingredients, curly crispy fried spring roll paper and pumpkins seeds coated in a oriental dressing showed me salad definitely doesn’t have to be boring.

The red chicken reminded me of sweet and sour pork Hong Kong style (Chinese cuisine), coated in a sticky sauce with a hint of chilli. Cooked to perfection without drying out the chicken, it was crispy on the outside, soft inside. And don’t think as it was a lunch time special it would be a tiny portion. There were eight or nine bite sized pieces.

My main dish of grilled baby chicken marinated in a Korean soybean sauce was equally pleasing. The chicken was succulent, complemented by a tangy sauce with a hint of chargrilled barbeque taste. I definitely recommend combing it with a bowl of rice which was fluffy as a cloud.

Stuffed. All of that for £15? Bibigo ticks all of the boxes and is now my favourite restaurant in London.
